Before meeting with the peer advisor fill out the 4-Year Check List. You can indicate on the checklist when you plan to complete certain requirements and what you think you will do for your Track and Co-Curriculars. Bring the form with you to your peer advising meeting and have the Peer Advisor sign and collect the form.
